Anybody here on the Linn Beta programme for the Linn App on iPad do not upgrade to the latest version as it crashes continually on startup. I still have Kazoo and that works as does reverting back to the 'official' release from the App Store. I presume this will be corrected next week when the engineers are back in work (why do they release things on a Friday?). Ironically I was only listening the other day to the interview with Gilad where he joked, tongue in cheek, that Linn never have software upgrades that fail! I wish!

That’s strange. I use Roon but still have a play with Kazoo and Linn app betas when they come out. Just tried here on iPad Pro 10.5” and iPhone 13 Pro and they’re both fine.

Just tried on iPad mini 2 with iOS 12.5.5 and its working fine

Update: it starts ok but crashes when selecting an album. Same as Arnold has reported on the Linn Dev Forum

I would never participate in ANY company's Beta programme for any product.

It's up to the manufacturer to test their software and get it right NOT use the poor customer.
Linn Products are not always good at software, except notably their in-house Kinsky designed by a Linn employee who sadly died shortly after completing it many years ago now which I've used faultlessly since 2007, currently on a Win 11 Pro PC.

Personally I like having access to updates early so long as I have a fall back position. Your system your choice.

I didn't know that about the Kinsky developer - sad to hear. Personally I was always happy with Kinsky's limited feature set and never engaged with the bashing it got from some.
